In Memory Of My Grandma

This is a hard post for me and I am going to try to get My bearings together enough to do it!!! My grandma passed away yesterday.
I had spent the most amazing last few months with this amazingly strong woman my grandma.
After not seeing my grandma for a few years it was a dream come true when she agreed to stay here for awhile and they were memories that I will never forget and cherish for the rest of my life. I did not know that when I was saying good bye to her a couple weeks ago that it would be the last time I would say those words. So she went back home and a few days later we found out she had cancer
and last week she had her first treatment and her body was just to weak to handle it. My heart is really breaking right now but I am so grateful that me and my kids had the chance to reconnect and be with her these last months of her life!!!
I love you Grandma so much!!!!

I am so sorry to hear this sweetie. I know your heart aches. Thank God you got to spend that time with her. It was meant to be. Trust me. :)

I hate to hear that her body was too weak to fight. I know from my owm mother, how horrible treatment is. It is so draining on your body and it causes a lot of other problems. I am thinking about you.

Stepahnie, I am so sorry for your loss. Those precious memories that you have will help to carry you through this difficult time. I lost my father in November and I am so grateful for all the trips I made to see him..My sister took care of him in her home and we came to help every few weeks. God bless you and your family. You will be in our prayers.
